Default 2014 Volvo XC90 Teased in New Design Sketches

We now have a better idea of what Volvo’s next generation XC90 may look like thanks to a quartet of sketches the Swedish automaker has released to the public. Reports are that Volvo intends to release its new XC90 sometime in 2014 and it should incorporate the automaker’s new Scalable Platform Architecture.
Few details are available for the successor of the popular crossover, but chances are Volvo will be looking towards a hybrid variant as well as outfitting it with a four-cylinder force-induced powerplant. For now we’ll just have to enjoy the sketches to see the design ideas that Volvo has, but so far we like what we see.

They need to hire somebody like Chip Foose to do the concept artwork

First pic reminds me of a boxier version of the first gen Infiniti FX, which I was a big fan of. New one still hasn't grown on me.

We now have our first official look at the all-new 2015 Volvo XC90, albeit only from the inside. Volvo started its official launch campaign for the new XC90 today by revealing the SUV's interior, and the automaker promises to release more information in the lead up to the full reveal in August.

The original XC90 was launched in 2002, and it revolutionized the SUV segment with its combination of space, versatility and safety. Volvo is keen to repeat that success, and from what we’ve seen the automaker may just pull it off.

The new interior is the most luxurious to have been designed by the Swedish automaker and takes advantage of Sweden's reputation for functional and elegant design and combines this with the latest technology. The most striking feature is a tablet-like touchscreen display in the center of the dash, which forms the heart of Volvo’s next-generation infotainment system and was first previewed in last year’s Concept Coupe. The system is virtually button free and not only controls vehicle functions but also a range of internet-based products and services.

Then there are all the luxurious touches such as soft leather and wood, plus handcrafted details including a gear-lever made of crystal glass from Orrefors, the famous Swedish glass maker. Another special touch is the diamond-cut controls for the engine starter button and volume control. It should come as little surprise that Volvo’s interior design chief, Robin Page, is a former Bentley man.

Finally, the new XC90 features specially designed seats that also free up interior space for passengers both in the second and third rows, helping to make the vehicle a genuine seven-seater. The seats are designed to be comfortable without the need for thick padding and they have been ergonomically shaped to better fit the spine. All seven seats feature three-point safety belts with pre-tensioners, and all the seat rows are covered by curtain airbags in a side impact or rollover situation.

The new XC90 will be Volvo’s first model to use the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) modular platform, which will eventually underpin all of the automaker’s vehicles from the next-generation S60 up. All vehicles based around the SPA platform will be powered by four-cylinder engines grouped in Volvo’s Drive-E family. They will also feature advanced safety features and new driver assist technologies with autonomous capability.

In July, Volvo will reveal technology highlights of the new XC90, including chassis and powertrain details. Later that same month we’ll get the full details on the vehicle’s safety features and air purification technology (a must for customers in China, the home of Volvo’s parent company Geely), before the final reveal of the exterior in August. In the meantime, hit our spy shots report for additional photos and info.
